Santa Cruz pump tracks are breeding a bunch of skilled and friendly young riders.

Santa Cruz is famous in the surfing community not only for it’s quality surf and talented pros but also for its fierce localism. Our surf spots seem to spawn not only talent but, too often, also hostility.
Santa Cruz is also breeding a new generation of stars, those that thrive on the world-class trails and bike parks around the county. In stark contrast to our surf spots, this is an environment where you will be embraced as a newbie and welcomed into the fold. And our youthful ambassadors and future stars of the sport are turning laps right now on a small dirt oval alongside Highway 1 on the Westside.
